What does any of this have to do with the *American* political spectrum, or the FBI, or fucking Fox News? Aside from the fact that, being American, they're things YOU can relate to? The woman is British and was arrested in Britain under British law. I was discussing the case with Gavin and Noel before you stuck your oar in with a completely uncalled-for (and, I hasted to add, entirely untrue) accusation that "people like me" - who form a well-define and identifiable community within the population, apparently - would no doubt be defending freedom of speech with our very lives if the person on trial were a Christian fundamentalist or white supremacist. Which is both offensive and totally wrong. And for the LAST TIME, she was NOT arrested for 'writing poetry' (why do I get the impression I'm addressing a brick wall, here?), and I don't give a toss about whatever right-wing people you may have met. And you give yourself the right to dictate to me what I think about hate-crime legislation (as it happens, I am in favour of it) and start talking about some totally irrelevant crime in America as if it's meant to reflect in any way what I think.
